"As visões poéticas são autónomas, a sua comunicação esotérica." (António José Fortes) - Ah sim?
"Poets come from homes where women rule: the sister of Trakl and those of Yesenin and Mayakovsky, the aunts of Blok, the grandmother of Hölderlin and that of Lermontov, the nurse of Pushkin, and above all, of course, the mothers, the poets' mothers, behind whom the fathers' shadows pale. Lady Wilde and Frau Rilke dressed their sons like little girls. Are you wondering why the child looked so anxiously at himself in the mirror? "It's time to become a man," Jiri Orten* wrote in his diary. During his entire life the poet searches for masculinity in the features of his face."
*Poeta Checo que morreu em 1941 aos 22 anos.
